If the exterior of your house has mold or peeling paint, it could be a sign that your gutters need fixing or replacing. Snow and ice can build up within the gutters, causing damage or leaks to the home. (It is a myth that gutters cause ice buildup – instead it is caused by heat escaping too quickly from your home.)
Clogged downspouts and debris in gutters can cause them to pull away or sag from the home. They may not be pitched correctly, leaving standing water that attracts insects and mold.
When it comes to keeping leaves out of your gutters and downspouts, there is no reason to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars to solve this common problem. There are many new and expensive gimmicks on the market today. Great American Gutter can solve these problems without spending all your hard earned money!
Other signs that the gutters may not be working correctly are cracks in the foundation of the house or water in the basement. Clogged gutters can cause water buildup, forcing it to overflow and causing water buildup around the foundation.
In any of these situations, getting a gutter professional such as Great American Gutter to assess the problem is the best step you can take to correcting your problem.
